Try before you buy.

The benefits of borrowing vs. buying are two-fold for most families. First, not buying something comes with the obvious advantage of not having to spend money on something your children will rarely use. Second, not buying every game and puzzzle under the sun allows you to decrease clutter and simplify your life.

If you are borrowing the same toy over and over, that’s a sure sign you are safe in buying it.

Toy Libraries are community builders.

When you borrow from a library, you are saying yes to everyone else in your community having access to the same things as you do. When you borrow toys, take time to talk to your kids about the fact that they are sharing these toys with the other kids in their city and why this is important.
